Who's in?

251 days until FF 12, but I'm not counting or anything.

Can't I just crash in the Mars Hotel?

Shoot...with that beast you could shuttle a couple of loads from the Off site parking lot and pay for your X Spot parking pass. X Spot parking passes sold out in less than 2 weeks last year though, so pull the trigger quick.

And truth be told, a 4 day GA ticket and a shuttle trip in on Thursday and out on Sunday is easy to pull off.

We'll be there Wednesday so if you want to try that option we can set up a tent for you just to stake claim some square footage. It's not like you do anything in your campsite except sleep for a few hours anyway.

With a $200 X-Spot parking pass you can indeed "crash in The Mars Hotel".

$700 VIP single or $1200 VIP pair...damn

$3,400. Yurts sleep 2-4, cost $3400 for 5 nights and 6 days, and include (2) VIP tickets. You could literally stroll into FloydFest empty-handed and be totally set!...DAMN!

I think the VIP Pair price break is an incentive to buy early so they can secure funding up front. For what you get, $700 isn't too bad either.

When you look at the ease of a Yurt package, $850 is reasonable.

I am content in my Kelty Mantra 5 tent.

Yurts (5 nights and 6 days0. Each yurt comes equipped with the following:
Queen bed with sheets, blanket and coverlet
Futon for sitting or additional sleeping (sleeps 2)
Electrical outlet
Ambient lighting
Hanging clothes storage
Private port o’ let
Coffee maker and locally-roasted Red Rooster Coffee
Shared outdoor lounge with cooler of complimentary drinks
Two of the following:
Towels
Pillows and pillowcases
Coffee Cups
Adirondack chairs


After-Party: All Yurt-dwellers are invited to join us Sunday evening for our annual FloydFest ‘After-Party’ which takes place backstage, and features music on the VIP stage!

Departure: We invite our yurt-dwellers to stay on site Sunday night, July 28th and make a leisurely departure on Monday morning. Check-out time is noon.

If you look at the Yurt for 2, and subtract the $1200 VIP pair, the remaining $2200 isn't as outrageous as it seems ay first glance. In fact, if my impending retirement goes well, I may just be looking at a return to Floydfest. Hey, they're bringing RRE back.
